Abstract

Consider the populations of four European countries, namely France, Italy, Netherlands and Spain in the period 1950-2006. We will estimate for each country the parameters of the Lee-Carter model for human mortality using the maximum-likelihood estimation method. Furthermore, we test whether mortality developments differ between the four countries. Therefore, we determine the log-likelihoods of the unrestricted and restricted Lee-Carter models and test statistical hypotheses using the likelihood-ratio test.
